Utah faces a serious threat of large damaging earthquakes. Consequences are all too vividly brought to mind by recent earthquake catastrophes in Armenia and Mexico City â€“ both relevant examples for potential earthquake losses along Utahâ€™s Wasatch Front.
In dealing with its earthquake treat, Utah has a unique opportunity to â€œdo it right.â€ These are evident strengths in Utahâ€™s earthquake program, which involves uncommon and praiseworthy interagency cooperation. The possibilities for dealing with earthquake problems in Utah in an integrated and manageable way are enviable. Further, an instrumentation program has been proposed that, despite its modest scale, is unusually comprehensive and would place Utahâ€™s earthquake program at the forefront of the nation. This publication details the program.
